Many of our presidents have made similar gaffes...both George H.W. and G.W. Bush R standouts IMO. 

GW raised it to an art-form. Also attacked Afghanistan and Iraq, among the most genocidal wars the US has carried out in 70 years.

This is an interesting point.

My mother and her sister grew up playing in a paint factory on the weekends.  Lead, of course.

My childhood meant all the kids were out in the neighbourhood somewhere (without bike helmets, of course), and just had to be home for dinner.

Now we're raising these bubble babies who can't even tolerate gluten!

And the planet really wants to pare back the numbers.  So it will try again next year.

Yes, of course you try everything.

And I am genuinely disappointed that the HCQ treatment didn't work.

But you need to get over it and move on to what is being tested now in several different countries, including the US.

I'm not sure where you get that one. We know an old lady who is Coeliac "disease is a condition where your immune system attacks your own tissues when you eat gluten. It stops you from taking in nutrients."

We R raising a bunch of molly-coddled kids I think.  God forbid they play in the dirt.   God forbid Playing among poison ivy (which I got for years but not as an adult.  Did I build immunities?  Probably.

When I was raising our 3 kids and there was Measles/Mumps/Chicken pox making the rounds I SENT MY KIDS TO THOSE HOUSES TO PLAY WITH THE KIDS HOPING THEY WOULD CATCH THOSE DISEASES...THEY DID!  Thus bldg. immunities.

"Herd immunity is a right-wing myth spread by science deniers".


Is this what you genuinely think?

Because, as far as I'm concerned those who oppose the scientifically proven concept of herd immunity are usually conspiracy theory whack-jobs just like the idiots protesting all over the states right now.

This is frowned upon now.

Understandably so, given how reckless it is to introduce a measles outbreak into any community.

It is better to get immunised.
